She's been doing really, really well, and she hasn't lost yet this year," she said. "She has a very attacking game. I know her game pretty well. I look forward to it." "I have absolutely nothing to lose in this tournament," added the second seed. Everything here is a bonus for me. Obviously I'm here to win." Her coach Patrick Mouratoglou said that to counter Konta's lightning fast game, Williams, who can retrieve the top world ranking is she wins the final, needed to start moving better around the court. "We have to solve that, especially against Konta, who is someone who plays so fast, so aggressive, takes the ball early. You can't afford to be slow," he said, the Herald Sun reported. "It was not that she won Sydney but it was also the way that she won it. She has no doubts at the moment." Like many players Sydney-born Konta, who has blossomed over the past two years, making the semi-finals in Melbourne last year, used to watch Williams as a child growing up.

I thrive on traveling, and instead of letting that part of me go, sharing my passion with my kids is the greatest gift I can give them. Bottom Line While it may not always be so easy to continue to live the globetrotter lifestyle once there are kids in the picture, it is oh-so-rewarding. Try to think of your new challenge as way to grow as a parent, too. I made the commitment to continue traveling with my children because I hope that one day it can give all of us a broader understanding of the world we live in. Traveling with my little ones also lets me see the world again through a new set of eyes, and allows me to let loose, be playful and totally present in the moment with them. Experiences like these are priceless. Continuing to do things that make me happy since becoming a mom will hopefully remind my children (especially my daughter) that it's still possible to have it all once you start a family.

After months of dismissing the accusations as unfounded, Iraqi Prime Minister Hayder Abadi today finally agreed to order an investigation into mounting evidence that security forces involved in the invasion of the northern city of Mosul are abusing civilians. Reports of abuses began virtually the moment Iraqi forces got into the city, with civilian groups reporting kidnappings and torture at the hands of security forces, especially Shi'ite militias. A video making the rounds over the weekend also showed police summarily executing three detainees. This has been a recurring problem in major invasions by Iraqi forces, as they rely heavily on militias in the battles, but are unable to prevent the militias from engaging in sectarian revenge attacks after the fight is over. Looting and lynching tend to be the order of the day, as Sunni cities are liberated.

The moment we walked in our home we knew it had the potential to become the home we had hoped for. Because of the year it was built, the woodwork isn't just simple; it has detail, history and character. One of the features at the top of our list when we were looking [was] a wood burning fireplace, so when we laid our eyes on that we were almost sold! The home was extremely outdated, but tackling home projects together is one of our favorite things to do as a couple, shares Libby. We could see what the home could be. They've redone the kitchen, added wood trim to the 90s addition on the front of the house, painted and created an entryway. Many projects remain that we didn't get to (landscaping, a fence, shutter paint, bathrooms), but we are moving on and are excited to see how the next homeowners put their stamp on the place! Libby and Tad have an eclectic style that mixes modern, traditional and vintage elements together for a seriously comfortable and inviting look.

In another Israel moment at the debate, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez condemned the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), when Grim asked, what kind of nonviolent movement for Palestinian independence should Democrats support if not BDS (at minute 120). Perez: I don't support the BDS movement because I think you look at many of the things that have been said by that movement, and I think they have been very destructive. Rather than forging consensus they've torn us apart, and that's not right. What we need to do whether it's the vexing question of Israel and the need for a two state solution, the need to get both sides together so that we can have peace and longterm prosperity... We need to make sure that we have people who are organizing who are moving the ball forward. I don't think the BDS movement is moving the ball forward, plainly and simply.

The popularity of mobile devices is increasing; just look around. All you need to do is walk outside to see tables of people having dinner together while staring at their phones, or individuals texting and walking, texting and driving, or, in some truly fascinating cases, texting, eating and walking — all at once. While it's easy to panic at this shift and criticize the mobile boom as something that takes us away from the present moment and all but destroys human communication as we know it, these criticisms aren't entirely based in reality. In fact, if you look at it objectively, the mobile boom has done many fantastic things, not only for connection and communication but also for small business marketing and ownership. Today, virtually everything is trending toward optimization for mobile platforms. This is true for content ranging from shopping apps to news articles, and it's a trend that shows no sign of slowing down.

Credit: NOAA/NASA An especially eye-popping image taken by GOES -16 from its equatorial vantage point situated in geostationary orbit 22,300 miles (35,800 kilometers) above Earth and published today, shows both the Earth and the Moon together as the lead image here. The Earth/Moon combo shot is not only fantastically pleasing to the eye, but also serves a significant scientific purpose. Like earlier GOES satellites, GOES-16 will use the moon for calibration,” say NOAA officials. “GOES-16 will boost the nation’s weather observation network and NOAA’s prediction capabilities, leading to more accurate and timely forecasts, watches and warnings.” GOES-16 is the most advanced and powerful weather observatory ever built and will bring about a ‘quantum leap’ in weather forecasting. “Seeing these first images from GOES-16 is a foundational moment for the team of scientists and engineers who worked to bring the satellite to launch and are now poised to explore new weather forecasting possibilities with this data and imagery,” said Volz.
